Essex Library Service


The Essex Mobile Library stops at Chrishall school every other week.

Children can apply for a library card, or if they already have an Essex library card they may use that card, to borrow books form the mobile library.  The children are able to use the bus during lunchtime when accompanied by a member of staff.

We would ask that the children use their own library cards to use the mobile library, however the mobile library are able to keep a copy of their library card (or the key fob section of the card) so that it is avaialble for the children to use if they would prefer not to bring it with them every two weeks.

If your child forgets their books on a day that the library van is due, they can be renewed online as normal for Essex Library services, or they can be dropped back into Saffron Walden library.


Mobile libraries

Essex mobile libraries carry a wide range of books and other items, but if you can't find a particular title you can reserve a copy. All mobile libraries are wheelchair-accessible. 

To find out when the mobile library is visiting your area simply select the letter for the town or village you are interested in. 

You can check the timetable for the mobile library here
